A dreamers late night idea:
At a Halloween party in 2000, Palmer met drummer Brian Viglione and together they formed the Dresden Dolls
ok, one year from now is the 10 years of the Dolls Mark : So either July/August 2010 we hire a venue in Boston while people are on holiday,
and coerce A+B there and have a dolls/brigade reunion in their hometown?

would you be up for this?
US Brigades, UK Brigade, Mexican brigade, French, German and Irish Brigades etc

Would you be up for this?
one year from now?

what do you think Amanda? or is it a dumb idea?

Paco! Hey! Hows it going!

I see you've found my silly wish...and if anyone could amass an army it would definitely be you.

Things I'd need to think about/request help with
A) Booking/getting AFP+B together+paying them (maybe they have a sliding scale like the A-team I just have to be a buxom blonde )
B) Securing a venue in Boston (costs) and crew/sound engineer for the show.
C) Getting everyone to travel there

I would love for this to happen though...

perhaps you need to seriuosly start planning this.......
was there not a UK based sound engineer that joined this forum recently?
(apparently he was something to do with the Roundhouse show recording)
Venue wise it might be an idea to look at a hotel that does conferences? good way of getting everyone under one roof
and providing a venue.... If costs etc are sorted now...... ways of funding it could be put in motion. also the more time between confirmation of the event and the actual event, will allow for everyone to start planning their finances and getting cheap flights booked etc.

Hotel conference room? I was thinking something more along the lines of Paradise venue

the reason for this choice is getting people together relatively cheaply and practically.....gorgeous venues are great but they are still just a building..... and generally quite expensive.......the people and the performers make the experience....
obviously if it proves practical to get a gorgeous venue...great! but bear in mind that you want people to travel from allover the world for this

but hotel conference room sounds so sterile and convention like.
you have a point tho.
I was kind of hoping a Boston local would have a few suggestions

That's bollocks!  There are ways to raise money, especially with a year to plan.  Too many people think they can't afford to travel, and I feel that one can't afford NOT to travel.  Thirty years from now, you're not going to miss the money you spend on a big trip, but you'll ALWAYS have the memory of those experiences, and I doubt you'd trade them for the money they cost.

Johnny, the only thing that's uncertain is getting the band back together.  If they agree to it, all you have to do is say "Dresden Dolls reunion show" and every venue in the Northeast will drop their panties to host it.

Raliel's got a good idea about a convention hall, though.  or, at least a hotel with a big theater and we can get group rates and package deals and such and such.  Dresden Dolls-con!  HAHAHA

do you have a REALLY HUGE living room?
on the note of affording it..... with a full year to plan and save...the chances of getting very cheap flight deals are much better, also group bookings can be arranged

Venues wear panties? I always thought they'd go commando.
well I guess the first step is Amanda and Brian. Maybe send fake letters to both of them separately inviting them to something interesting and when they come their gear is laid out for a show and we're all there... If only life were a cheesy 80s movie it would work...

You are right also a year to save up is no great feat and Robin maybe a conference place can have character.. Ill start looking today

Len would New York not be Uber expensive for everyone?

I will make a serious proposal to Amanda and Brian soon but thank you for your help everyone so far.

anyone want to estimate how many peeps?

manhattan would be uber-expensive,
but one of the boroughs, or  nj,
could end up less expensive than boston

might look @ richmond, wahington, baltimore,
philly, new haven, and
providence too, from a cost standpoint

i cant imagine it exceeding 100 from across the ocean
but including US brigade/fans wanting to attend anywhere from 500-1000?
